Today, it was with relief that I heard my sister echo a sentiment that flitted through my brain yesterday.
See, it is never easy to take a decision. Especially if that decision is irreversible. In many cases, you don't know whether you have made the right decision. You convince yourself that you have and you move on.
To have your decision confirmed as the right one is comforting. It enables closure.
Yes, it is a strange thing to say, but sometimes less of you makes for more.
